Can the phrase keyword "google+" be used as a negative ?

Hello,

 

If I use the phrase "google+" as a negative keyword will it effectively block searches for information from google+ profiles or will it be interpreted as "google" without the plus sign ?

 

Thank you

Ok, this type of search costed me only a click yesterday , but i was curious if I can prevent similar clicks.

It looks like these clicks will go under the "acceptable loss percentage" Smiley Happy
